The Editorial Board of the fast approaching International Theatre Engineering and Architecture Conference are pleased to announce actor Mark Rylance as their latest Keynote Speaker.
A brilliant award-winning stage and screen career places him at the forefront of his generation and the Editorial Board for ITEAC 2018 are very pleased to have been able to accommodate Mark within his professional commitments. It was felt to be of the highest priority to ensure that the voice of an actor of such experience and considered opinion should be heard at an event that seeks to be seminal for both the leading and the emerging talents working in the design and specification of places of entertainment.
Named in Time Magazine’s 2016 100 Most Influential People List, Mark’s work includes a 10-year tenure as the first Artistic Director of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre (1996-2006), which included the construction of the Theatre and International Shakespeare Globe Centre. He founded the organisation’s Architectural Review Group, which is at present reviewing the architectural decisions of 1996-97 in the light of twenty years’ experience of playing at the Globe.
In January of this year it was announced that he would return to the Globe Theatre stage in July 2018, to play Iago in Shakespeare’s Othello.
Mark Rylance was Knighted in 2017 for Services to Theatre.
